On successful completion of the Manufacturing Technology apprenticeship the apprentice is awarded a Higher Certificate Engineering (Level 6) Manufacturing Engineering.
This apprenticeship is a two-year programme delivered by Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology and a number of other providers.
It involves two 15-week blocks of off-the-job training in the allocated Institute of Technology and the remaining 70% of time training on-the-job.
For this Manufacturing Technology apprenticeship, the employer pays the apprentice for the duration of the apprenticeship. The rate of pay is agreed between the employer and the apprentice.
Apprentices pay a pro-rata registration fee if their off-the-job training takes place within an Institute of Technology. The registration fee will equate to the amount of time the apprentice spends in the Institute of Technology. The payment of the pro-rata registration fee is made by the apprentice directly to the Institute of Technology. For further information,
